STANDARD VIEW MARC VIEW
by WESLEY R. RAMSEY
We have felt for some tiltn
,hat it was a little heartless tc
leprive youngsters of the pri-i-
.ege of shooting fireworks espec-
rally recalling back the years to
the fact that we enjoyed them
very much and feel that every
person 'in the country have en-
ioyed fireworks at one time or
another. The standard argument
.has been that conditions are
,iow too crowded and danger
"rom fires is too great. And then
loo, the danger of the fireworks
has been a big factor.
Of course in congested areas
i ban on fireworks is a sensible
:aw but does that mean that
they should be banned entirely?
For the fire picture, let us look
at the 1953 fire underwriters re-
port: Out of all the causes of
sires, fireworks is at the bottom
of the list with only 2,000 fires
being blamed to' fireworks, bal-
loons and miscellaneous causes
throughout the United States
during the past year. The next
lowest of fires was responsible
for over 24,000 fires in 1953.
And thhA the largest cause of
fires was smoking in bed. Maybe
we should ban these grown-ups
from smoking and.cure this sit-
:By these figures we would
ordinarily rule fireworks out as
a main cause of fire, but of
course keep them out of conges-
fed areas so as not to tempt fate.
And then comes danger from
fireworks. We will wager that
not near so many injuries were
caused from fireworks in areas
where they' permitted, as were
caused from toys received dur-
Of course, there are fireworks
that are dangerous from both a
fire and injury standpoint. These
could be outlawed. In fact ma), I
states allow fireworks but .out-'
law certain kinds, leaving a wide !

We would like to see a modi-
fication of -the fireworks law,

limits and ofitlawing such num-
bers as sky rockets, and large
explosive numbers which would

The 1953 Tuberculosis Christ-

to a close with the total returns
approximately $50.00 short of the
amount collected last year.

against $1,539 collected in 1952.
'Saunders stated to The 'Star that
there were still a great number of
Seal Sale letters that had not been
answered as yet and urged each
and every one who has not return-;
ed a check for the Christmas seals
to do so at, the earliest possible
moment since the 1953 fiscal year
ends on March 31.
Saunders said that collections by
the colored i)eople of the

Last Saturday afternoon about
2:30 p.m. a mentally ill patient
wandered off from the Chattahoo-
chee State Hospital and hopped a
train making his way to Port St.
Local policemen, M. A. Kelley
and Lee Edwards noticed the col-
ored man wandering about various
parts of the (-wn Saturday and
kept a close vigilance on him due
to suspicious, actions. When the
man was still on the streets about
1:30, the officers picked the man
up for routine questioning. Upon
taking the man to the police sta-
tion and upon close questioning
it was discovered that the man
was an 'escapee from the asylum.
Officer Kelley stated that upon
accosting the i'an for the first time
he asked wheltf the colored quar-
ters were and. cted normal in all
respects. Since "the man was dres-
sed in work dibthes, the officers
became suspicious and took the
man in for questioning.
A representative from The Star
questioned authorities from the
Institution. Sunday morning upon
their arrival.Ao return the man to
the hospital. The officials said that
the man was n6t normally danger-
ous and was a trustee working out-
side the institution on' its farm

Scott says that many people still
think of the program as it was
when they were first covered back
in 1937 and 193S. They are surpris-
ed, in many cases, to learn that
there are benefits payable to sur-
vivors in death cases. Others think
of the program as it operated prior
to the 1950 amendments, not rea-
lizing that even since that recent
date, the benefits have substan-
tially increased, the eligibility re-
quirements greatly modified, and
new types of benefits provided.
Scott urges that workers get up-
to-date information about what the
social security program means to
them and their families. They
should know something about what
they can expect as payments upon

Kennedy Plan Appears As Obstacle
In the current issue of The Atlantic maga-
zine, Massachusetts' young Sen. John F. Ken-
nedy writes about "New England and the
South". As is known from several of his speech-
es of the past year, Kennedy is disturbed by
the movement of New England industry to the
We can well understand that Sen. Kennedy
is disturbed. He is a politician and his people
are losing some of the wealth they have enjoyed
for generations. He is a native New Englander,
proud of his homeland. Nobody likes to see
things get, bad back home.
senator should be battling for home and voting
It is only natural that Massachusetts' junior
constituents. We can admire him for fighting
for his side.
But we think the senator is letting his zeal
for serving his. constituents carry him into a
punitive campaign against the South. He de-
-ies this, of course. Throughout his piece in
The Atlantic he drops sentences saying that he
doesn't want to harm the South.
"It would be unfair to imply that the South's
natural advantages have not been responsible
for a large "share of this industrial migration,"
he says. At another point he says "It would be
wrong for New England to attempt to retard in-
dustrialization of the South." In fact, he says
New England "must sell to the South and the
nation as a whole" and that it thus benefits from
the increase in Southern and national buying
power and prosperity.
However, the senator from Massachusetts
is quick to argue that unfair competitive prac-
tices have led industry to migrate from New
England to the South. He argues that substan-'
dard wages, tax subsidies, federal policies, anti-
union policies, and inadequate social benefits
in the 'South have worked to the disadvantage
of New England.
He would boost minimum wages by federal
statute, also raise unemployment compensation
and Social Security benefits, and alter the Taft-
Hartley law and another statute so as to set a
higher minimum wage in the woolen industry.
"Tax loopholes must be closed," he says,
"and equal consideration given to all areas in
the administration of policies dealing with tax
write-offs, transportation rates, and government
contracts and projects; for these should not be
factors inducing plant migration."
It is interesting to note that he blames some
federal policies as giving the South an unfair
advantage over New England. Yet, he calls for
the very federal policy that has been adopted
by the Eisenhower administration, the award-
ing of federal contracts in so-called surplus labor
areas to stimulate business in New England.
In calling for higher minimum wage rates,
to be established at Washington, the senator
does not take into account varying living costs
found in different sections of the nation. A hide-
bound wage law could drive marginal producers
in the South out of business. This would elim-
inate jobs, and for jobless Southern workers, the
higher rates proposed in Washington legislation
would be only theoretical.
What the senator seems to forget is that
the South for generations has been starved for
industry. Only now is the South coming into
its own. It has a long way to go to realize the
full potential of its natural resources. But it is
on the way and is determined to get its just share
of the nation's earning and purchasing power.
The South has had to get industry in every
way it could. There were no Marshall Plans for
the South following the devastation of the War
Between the States. The South's wealth was
taken away. But New England collected its
dollars in the slave trade-and it is this wealth
today which is the foundation for much of that
region's economic and industrial might.
Why should New England ever have de-
veloped into the nation's cotton textile manu-
facturing center? In 1925 New England had
80 per cent of this industry, now only 20 per
cent. It was an economic fallacy that New
England and not the South, which produced all
of the nation's cotton until recent years, should
become the leading cotton textile manufacturing
region. If the South is getting this industry now,
it is only through free operation of economic
It was federal policy then that made New
England wealthy. Yet the Massachusetts sena-
tor is exercised now lest federal policy benefit
We don't know the answer to New Eng-
land's woes. But we do doubt that the South
would benefit from the Kennedy program. His
federal legislative schemes to benefit New Eng-
land smack too much of penalties and stumbling
blocks for Southern industrial growth.

Well, the jolly old man with the
red suit and white whiskers has
come and gone. Father Time with
his aching back and well worn
scythe has stepped out of the pic-
ture and our hopes are pinned on
the diapered kid labled "1954".
Another year. Another chance to
profit from the mistakes of the
past and build for the future. An-
other opportunity to staighten uo
and fly right.
Certainly America, and especial-
ly Florida, has more to look for-
ward to than any other area on
earth. Our blessings are so num-
erous we cannot tabulate them. It
is up to us as a nation and as in-
ividuals to so conduct our lives
and our actions as to justify the
God-given advantages that are ours.
Ours is the opportunity to pro-
vide the strong, constructive leader-
ship this troubled world needs to-
day. As individuals or even as a
great nation, we cannot hope to
solve all the world's problems
alone. Our salvation rests in our
ability to work intelligently and
harmoniously with fellow men and
We can enter the new year with
faith and courage rather than hate
and fear. We can employ our wealth
and power toward the advance-
ment of mankind rather than his
destruction .The world today, in
spite of all its imperfections, is at
better world than it. was a century
The peace that all men seek may
not be attained in 1954, but it can
.be brought nearer if we employ
our hearts and minds and resour-
ces toward bringing it about. Our
swords may not be beaten into
plowshares, but we can keep the
sword sheathed as we use our God-
given intelligence a n d reason
the conference table in an effort
to solve our differences.
Should we be so unfortunate as
to forsake that wisdom and intel-
ligence and attempt to substitute
force and arrogance, we will only
provide history with another record
of the folly of man's inhumanity to
nman. It won't be a pretty story and
few will remain to record it.
As an individual you probably
feel that you are but a pawn in the
general scheme of things; that
there is nothing you can do to ad-
vance or stay the situation. But
you can THINK and you can

This fretful land has too many

and a pleasant retirement, is bosh.

It has been sorta hard to believe
that a Govt. would sponsor any
sort of venture that would put tar-
nish on our Constitution versus
burnish same. Socialism in Europe

Compared to the problems of the
world, the conflict between employ-
ers an employees of the American
Can and Continental seem trivial,
but they are directly related for
they represent a conflict for the
control of men's minds for good or
evil. And the THOUGHT and EX-
PRESSION of the individual has a
direct bearing on the outcome be
it for better or for worse.
Here we see a case of Labor
and Industry, selfish, arrogant and
unyielding, concerned only, with
their personal problem threatening
a great industry and countless
thousands of innocents, determined
to gain a point. Neither side is
happy, both are losing much more
than can ever be gained when the
final settlement is reached simply
because some executives didn't
know how to THIINK or TALK.
What a pity it is that leadership
is so weak and followers so stupid
that a few ill-advised men can
wreck an industry, a nation or the
world! God in Heaven, give us men
of good-will, men of reason, intelli-
gence and courage and do not for-
sake us in these perilous times.

decay works its way into the sofl
tissue within. it spreads rapidly.
Decay usually doesn't occur or,
smoothly tnoth surfaces that are con
stantly cleaned by movement of
food over them in the chewing pro
cess. To create decay, there must
be a favorable point for growth.
Natural creases, pits, grooves and
spaces between teeth provide the
usual places for decay.
Most dental authorities agree
tooth decay is caused by acids
formed in the mouth through action
of bacteria on the sugars and
starches that stick in these crev-
)ni' of the recent findings of
dental science is that acids are
formed very rapidly and are in
greatest concentration on the teeth
five to 20 minutes after eating
sweet or starchy foods. These acids
may continue to be produced in
sufficient strength to damage the
teeth for about 90 minutes.
Nature has provided a defense
against the "decay" acids, but in

Mr. and Mrs. Rush Chism and

spent the week end in Mobile, Ala.,
with relatives and friends.
Due to the fact that the days are
so short at the present time and
the children are getting home so
late (especially the children who i
ride the buses) it has been decided
to shorten the high school day.
It is. planned to let the high
school out at 3:25 each day instead
The school is able to do this by
re-scheduling the 30 -minute acti-
vity period which had heretofore t
been scheduled the last 30 min- I
utes of the school day.
Hereafter this period will be ro-
tated throughout the schedule of
classes during 'the week taking the
last half of different classes thru-
out the week.
By following this plan it will be
possible to deduct 30 minutes from
the 300 minutes that heretofore
have been spent in each class each
week. This plan as outlined is rec-
ognized as being legitimate by the
State Department of Education and
Southern Association of Colleges
and Secondary Schools. In order
to earn a Carnegie unit in a sub-
ject, 225 minutes have to be spent
